Anthony Paul Salon’s friendly beautifiers groom follicles and phalanges using deft hands and discerning eyes. An easier way to update appearances than drawing a soul patch with magic marker, haircuts ($26/men, $35/women) shear unruly strands, leaving manes organized and voluminous. Stylistas paint locks with color, transforming hair with golden highlights or rich all-over hues ($45–$90). Never ones to let hair have all the fun, a legion of nail artists buff and polish nails with manicures ($20) and pedicures ($35). Upgrade to a Shellac manicure ($35) to pamper digits with luxe high-shine polish that can stay chip-free for up to 14 days or eternity, if you know a genie.
Previously known as Sweetest Nirvana Day Spa, Spa Alexis retained the same soothing vibe and friendly, skilled spa specialists but successfully teleported their dexterous digits to a new roost downtown. Bequeath your strands to one of these sure-handed hair stylists and let him or her wet and wring your mop, cleanse and caress your scalp with silky product, and mold tresses into a charming keratin tiara that best fits your royal dome.

A firm proponent of personalized treatments, Maggie works with her clients to craft skincare regimens that combine professional treatments with continued homecare, resulting in visages as fresh and glowing as a newly minted star. She also pampers bodies with salt scrubs and wraps, and smoothens out skin with swift hair-removal services.
